Highlights

Highlight: Crown Point ATV Trail
Elevated above Kenai Lake and the circumambient peaks within the Chugach National Forest, Crown Point ATV trail offers picturesque views of the greater Kenai Lake Area. A small mountain glacier is clearly visible at the end of the trail and is as close as one can drive to Crown peak with great views of Solars Mountain across the mountainous glacial valley. Along the top portions of the trail, mining remains can be seen, including a large steel cable from an aerial tram, an old engine block, and other reminders of what happened here many decades ago.

1. Trailhead (0 mi)
There is a large gravel cul-de-sac just before the marked trail begins. Do not block the private property access. The trail is tight and low range, while not required, is advantageous from here on.

I brought my dad along for the ride on our way to Seward for some fishing and we had a great time on the trail. There was still a little bit on snow on the trail but the views were spectacular.

Kyle has been into off-roading since getting his license at 16 and wheeling the family SUV (possibly without informing his parents of these wheeling trips in their vehicles). He graduated from the University of Alaska Anchorage with an Electrical Engineering degree. He lives in south-central Alaska and is raising his two young kids. Kyle stays busy year-round by working full-time as an Electrical Engineer who spends his weekends wheeling, hunting, fishing the local lakes, and raising his family. He is eager to share his love of the outdoors with others, especially when it involves a 4WD. His goal is to create an amazing resource for locals and travelers alike to enjoy the endless beauty Alaska has to offer while respecting the trails and keeping them open for years and generations to come.
